|Christine Smith||Photo on grave|
Why is there a photo of a Hannah Ballard b. 1832 on the memorial for Martha Ballard? Chris Smith
|Kahpo||Martha and Ephraim Ballard|
Both Martha and Ephraim Ballard are not buried at this cemetery. They were buried on their son's home stead at the fork in the Belgrade road this came to be known as the Ballard burial ground. In the 1850's the new owners of the land moved some of the remains and the headstones that were left to the Townsend road cemetery. (where many Ballreds are listed) but no one knows the actual location of Martha or Ephraim graves as no one knows what remains were moved or not in 1850. You can all this info from the Maine Humanities Council " The Maine of Martha Ballard A self guided Tour of buildings and other features in Hallowell and Augusta"
If possible please delete her from the Hawowell cemetery and add her to the Townsend road Cemetery.
